undead and ruins
Humans - MountainExtra starting perk - Ursine gene. Small chance of Ursine humans being born.
>>33112847>>33112877Ok, Humans 1Undead 1Yeti 1Serpent Folk 1Machines 1Mountains 3It's... SOMETHING in the mountains.Come on fellas, get some consensus talk amongst yourselves! Gimme a minute to smoke and I'll tally 'em up.
>>33112877Of course, if that's cool by you OP.
>>33112877also, what the eff are ursine humans?Bear men?!?!?!I have the weirdest boner right now!
I'd rather just be Bear men instead of just humans with a chance of some being born.
>>33112938That's right lad. bear men. Glorious bear men. I see them as being in bear form all the time, unlike werebears.
>>33112954That's cool by me, but we don't ave stats for ursine.
>>33112993I really don't know anything about Ursine, but i'd say just give them minotaur stats to make it easy (minus the fear of heights thing, maybe for a weakness they wanna hibernate or some shit)
>>33113037Maybe, it wouldn't give them much individuality though.
>>33113098which one of you suggested it?OP, how would you stat some bear-men?
>>33113122It was me, I figured that it would be the easiest to just make them a sub-species type thing for humans for now.Btw, we eed more votes people.
>>33112956>>33112963>>33112993>>33113037>>33113098>>33113122>>33113164Still in dire need of a consensus.So far we're for in the mountains, and the races are Humans 1 (urcine, i'm not sure how I'm gonna deal with that)Undead 1Yeti 1Serpent Folk 1Machines 1Come on folks lets get some happy
>>33113215I'll probably change my vote if it doesn't get any votes anytime soon.
>>33113164Okay, Machines in Floating Islands voter here.I tought that choosing an interesing race like Insect or Machine would be big boon but im willing to change my vote.>>33113215Urcine is just a Versatility perk.They're all votes for Human.
>>33113215okay I had suggested the serpent folk, I'm gonna change my vote to humans ( I don't care if we have the urcine thing or not)
>>33113259>>33113257>>33113249Ok, humans have it. Please link all rolls to the most recent update.First one wins every time. Ok, for starters roll for whether or not we're urcine.Roll 1d100 please
Rolled 94>>33113281>Roll for wheter or not we're urcineDo wot.
>>33113297Alrighty, Writing now.Anons, start your engine. Will be running most of this by consensus with letter choice. Please be sure to pick a letter even if it's "e something else" for ease of writing.I love you all
Rolled 55>>33113281Fuuck, It's been a long time since last I was on /tg/, let's see if I still l know how to roll.
>>33113371general updates will not take this long, I'm just writing the preamble here.Gimme seven minutes worth of bumps, plox.
>>33113334we love you too OP
At first the elders thought it was a plague, or a curse by some kind of dark sorceror. Children were increasingly being born with bear-like features. Some had claws, some had fur. Others came out of the womb as cubs and later transformed into perfect little babies. The purvailing rumor became that there was a trickster God flitting throughout the city, raping women in the guise of a bear. Oddly, not many thought there was a rash of bear-boning by the young women of the city, though a few old codgers believed this to be true. Whatever the cause, after a whole generation grew up with an alarming number of bear-like citizens, it was clear something had to be done. Any family known to bear the "ursine" trait or curse or burden or boon (in some circles) prepared, at the behest of the all-powerful elder council, to embark upon a treacherous journey. Soon the elders summoned their powerful magic and sent the group haphazardly through a portal to a faraway land where their like would never bother their utopic society again. The air sizzles on the mountain your people landed on. All-told, only twenty seven members of the nearly two hundred exhiles made it here. Luckily, among those who landed, the supply donkeys have all made it safely with the democratically elected leader (who also happened to be the oldest ursine human in your city) smack dab in the middle. [Choose a name and profession for the leader. He has a bonus to any kind of climbing, can turn to his bear form at will, and has the potential to be a ferocious hand-to-hand fighter.] A group of five warriors also made it through. Their ability to easily transform any portion of their bodies into bear-form at a moments notice have made them some of the fiercest warriors from the home nation, and the elders there were sad to see them go. cont...
>>33113685Nine women of working and child-bearing age also made it through, four carrying the trait, five who had been related to members of the exhile group and decided to accompany them.An old crone who does not carry the trait also made it. In the old country, she'd been an esteemed medicine woman.A middle-aged man without the trait known to all as "the tinkerer" also made it in, but his donkey and cart are nowhere to be found. His knowledge is locked in his head, but it will take time for him to remake his vital tools.Five skilled farmers, all with the trait, made it through without their wives or children.Two blacksmiths (one ursine, the other his twin brother without the trait) are here with their donkey and cart, and the basics for their profession.Three parentless children also made it through. All are traited and happy to be away from the mistreatement they received in the old country.Pick a name for leader. Stat sheat and map to come.
>>33113700Heinrick von Bearington
>>33113700Bugha, and he is a druid or shaman

>>33113906>Cleary>We should start scoutingHave 2 Warriors scout to West.Have 1 take a Supply Donkey with him.Rest of Warriors Guard the place.
>>33113991this.Do our farmers have any seeds?
>>33114068>>33113991>>33113936Sorry for the delay, here comes.Heinrick Bon Bearingstine, the Ranger surveys his party. They are few but they will be strong. He looks around to see they're near the very top of a mountain surrounded by a swamp. To the south (on the peak) there is a cave entrance (see map). Time to get to work.Wat do?A. Start building fortificationsB. Scout!C. BangD. Sacrifice a child to the big dipper.E. OtherFeel free to combine any number, but use letters. Helps me keep straight.
>>33114100Why is sacrificing a child an option? Wtf op? In other news, choice D plz
>>33114100Orange blob is your party.>>33114068Supplies:15 donkeys, carrying the basics for any represented profession, and most basic ones. Except tinkerers/tech guys. Those will have to be built.Food enough for 3 turns.Children will be "of age" in 3 turns.
>>33114100Clear out the cave and Build homes in the caveBang afterwards, try to have the most dominant over the non-traits and only trait with trait. If the men don't have the trait, they can't bang
>>33114100A. and B. cleary>>33114122OP is always weird.I think playing as OP messes with your mind at this point.
Rolled 85>>33114144This sounds good
>>33114122>>33114144This, so B first, we can build fortifications in there once its cleared.
>>33114128So far we have 1 vote for "E" clear out the cave, which will require scouting the cave.E "Clear out the cave" 2B "Scout!" 2D "Sacrifice a child to Ursa Major" 1A "Build Fortifications" 1>>33114122I mostly hang out on /b/
>>33114202er, sorry, 2 votes. Clearing the cave will vary in time/turns depending on what you devote to it in terms of manpower.I'm perfectly fine with splitting it up a little, but it effects your speed the smaller the group.
>>33114218>>33114202Clear out the cave this turn. We can bang and build later
>>33114232need a 3-vote consensus to proceed.
>>33114232Wait.We should have good defences so if there's anything in the cave it doesn't fry our asses.
>>33114232I agree with this
>>33114202I say send the men who are capable of fighting.
>>33114255We are bears. There should (hopefully) just be some shit that needs to clear out we might even find a bear! Besides why would be build defense against our soon to be home?
>>33114202E Gets it.dice+1d100
Rolled 71>>33114300Twice you've gotten dubs
>>33114313Alrighty, writing.Talk amongst yourselves for a moment.
Our people need to tame the bears if there are any in this cave. I want a cavalry made of bears riding bears
Rolled 7>>33114352No, we need to be in human form,The. Once we get close transform lithely double the bear count the enemy sees as they shot their pants and run
>>33114323Ok tehn, I think we should have all the ones with th trait practise their transformations. It would be betst if they could all turn into fully bear-man hybrid without much difficulty and stay in that form for a prolonged time.>>33114352And this sounds strangely satisfying.
>>33114396In English please.
>>33114400And I can't write for shit right now.
>>33114323DELICIOUS DUBS ADDITION (You pointed out that I've rolled dubs a bit, and the gods have shined upon your fervent worship of me, your OP. You get 2 full actions this turn, of my choosing among those voted upon.)The women and the non-combat type males set about breaking camp and setting up a makeshift campsite a safe distance from the cave. The tinkerer sets about wandering across the top of the mountain your elders tossed you to. He fumbles through his long coat and grasps a small metal object from his homeland. It is a scouting hummingbird, nearly out of charge, that will draw a rough map of the surrounding area.He tosses it into the air and it circles the mountain where you are, returning to the tinkerer (MAP UPDATE GET) a short time later.It reveals that there is another entrance to the cave on the far side of the mountain, and only one passable path to reach the level area that houses your peopleThe brave leader, Heinrick Von Bearenstein gathers the five brave warriors and they head toward the cave, knowing this may be the perfect place to start a new life.[Entering the cave in next post][See new map]
>>33114502Your five great warriors and Heinrick Von Bearenstein the Ranger, your fearless leader, cautiously enter the cave you hope to make your home. Torches in six human hands, the party advances slowly. You reach a branch, with small passageways (wide enough for 2 men at a time) to the south, east, and west.What now?!A. Go East.B. Go West.C. Go South.D. Nope the fuck outta here and close off the cave.
>>33114656Going with this
>>33114677Btw, how long does these threads last here on /tg/? Because I should really get some sleep.
>>33114699I'm probably going to keep going until around 10 pm central time (I'm from Kansas, USA)Need one more for consensus!B -- West -- 2
>>33114619West. Have 2 men in front, Bearenstein and a man in the middle with a bow, and the other two guarding the rear
>>33114763>>33114763BYou went WESTThe party heads west, and the chamber opens up into a natural room. It's easily large enough for the entire settlement to sleep on the ground in bear form (with a few in cots above them if they can't transform), but there are webs all over the walls and ceiling.There is only one exit, a small opening that could only fit one man at a time. Heinrich quiets his warriors and the sound of skittering can be heard from the corridor. It's faint at first, but gets louder as you listen. Whatever it is, there must be a lot of them.Wat Do?!A: Bear form, charge in and wreck shit as bears.B: Nope Nope Nope and head on out.C: Your call/Other! Going on three.
Rolled 71>>33114911A) Berserk mode and wreck shit
Rolled 34>>33114911A: Bear mode, mother fucker
>>33114911>>33114963>>33114985>>33115127Heinrich Von Bearingstein spreads his arms wide. "Ours has not been an easy lot! We're freaks, cursed with power that terrifies our brethren.""But today we have an opportunity to carve a new home from these rocks. TODAY WE MAKE OUR DESTINY"Heinrich roars, transforms into a mighty bear, and dives headlong into the corridor, his five fierce warriors close on his heals.cont...
>>33115148The skittering is now as loud as a waterfall, whatever it is is definitely aware they have company.Heinrich, in bear form, plows through the corridor into the next room in the cave and lands face-to-face with a giant spider. No hesitation, Heinrich lunges on the beast and tears it asunder. The corridor has almost no light, but a few holes in the roof provide enough for the enhanced vision possessed by the ursine warriors.The spiders, unaccustomed this sort of interference in their home are startled by the onslaught and dozens of them fall within seconds of the initial blitz.The spiders dive on their attackers and begin attacking en masse.By the end of the scuffle, there is only one spider still alive, an even larger spider who is clearly the queen, surrounded by a wall of spider-corpses.The ursine warriors suffered minor scratches and cuts. Nothing serious.Heinrich and the five warriors surround the spider-queen, who has backed into a corner, clearly clogging a hole of some kind in the cave, and is frantically trying to bury herself in the corpses of her children.Wat do?A. Finish her!B. Attempt to communicate? (Roll 100)C. Incapacitate her but do not kill (roll 100)D. Other! (Go ahead and roll with whatever you choose, though I may not require it.)Going on a consensus of 3 (if we still have that many)
Rolled 19>>33115347C. Incapacitate her
>>33115401>>33115347Smoking a cig. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves, folks! I have no problem with that.
>>33115420goin with this
Rolled 81>>33115420yeah, lets talk to ol' Shelob
Rolled 40>>33115420Maybe we can convince her to breed up levies for us, in return for... protection? Or something?
>>33115536Voting closed.B Attempt to communicate wins it.Writing
>>33115600The enormous spider (even by "we just fought a cave full of giant spider" standards) continues to pile the corpses of its young upon itself, and barely reacts to Heinrich as he edges closer.Heinrich shudders and transforms back to his man-form, naked and nearly blind, touches his forehead with his left hand and stretches out his right toward the spider-queen.She shudders, raises up her enormous form to its full majesty, and jabs her right foreleg with lightning speed at Heinrich.The five warriors roar in unison but Heinrich holds up a human arm to silence them. His eyes widen and the spider makes contact with his mind.She is an ancient brood-mother, who once drank from a magical spring that gave her extra-normal abilities. She expresses sadness at the loss of her children, but hope that Heinrich's exposure in his human form means he isn't as savage as they seemed.Their minds sync and though Heinrich struggles to navigate her experiences and many years, she has no trouble taking in his entire life.She fills Heinrich's mind with the last moment in their homeland, expresses sadness at his loss, flashes another image of the corpses of her children, then another of the chamber below her, filled with thousands upon thousands of eggs.A voice shakily coalesces from the clicking in their mental link."Please... Let my children live. I can be of use to your kind. We are outcasts among our races."Wat do?A. Attempt a treaty (Roll 100)B. ATTACK, kill it all with fire! (Roll 100)C. Other, your call. (Roll 100)
>>33115921good roll!We go on 3. So far:A: Attempt a treaty 1
Rolled 3>>33115921Lol treaty
>>33115921>>33116001>>33116032Treaty it is.Writing
Rolled 85>>33115921Hell yeah, this.>>33115877why you gotta fuck with my emotions, OP?
>>33115921Spiders and Bears, oh my.Good news, all the silk we can need.
>>33115877>>33115921A (Rolled 98, lucky ass)Heinrich labors to speak through the bond, but is able to convey his willingness to work out a treaty. He learns much from their conversation, not the least of which that the spider queen is able to designate her children in the egg-sac, and is capable of controlling vast hordes of her kind, but has not yet been able to build a strong enough generation of warriors to do anything but try and survive.Something lurks deeper on in the cave, something she can only show as a flurry of brown hulking behemoths and razor claws, that likes to devour her kind by the dozens, and your assault came far too soon after a recent raid by them to have any chance of rebuilding. You caught her off guard, and wiped away all but her single greatest warrior, guarding the egg cavern.The five warriors sit back impatiently as their nude leader leans against the giant spider with deep concentration on his face.Minutes pass, and Heinrich begins speaking aloud."This beast, [Pick a name, first come first serve], is ancient and mighty, but has surrendered to us and wishes to live in harmony. She will provide protection in times of peril, fighting alongside us.""In return, she asks for our dead. Ours, and any we create. The bodies of our kind will serve as incubators for those children she pre-ordains as mighty warriors, grand web-weavers, and future princesses. The bodies of our enemies we lay before her shall be used as food for her common children of all castes.""I am asking much of our people, to bury our dead as food for something so seemingly grotesque, but she can aid us as we establish our new home, our new life."cont...
>>33116329Name: CheldrassaAlternately "Spider8itch"
>>33116329"Our dead are always food. I would rather it be to allies than to the worms and vultures."
>>33116329cont...As a show of good faith, she implants the last "map" her scouts reported into Heinrich's head. He has trouble making it out, but gets the gist. (pic related. It's spider view, make of it what you will. It is somewhat incomplete, due to her lack of forces recently)The choice is your, folks.Do you:A: Accept the terms, leave the spiders to this cavern for now, and explore on.B: Betray the bitch and eat her children. (Roll 1d100)C: Your call (Roll 1d100)
>>33116482"Cheldrassa" Locked in, btw.Map is intentionally not labeled. Just before anyone asks.
Rolled 73>>33116482A. Accept.
>>33116482A.i also think we should head to that watery area to the east, that looks like a good place to settle.
>>33116532>>33116516>>33116514Let us "A".The terms are accepted and the bear-warriors shed their battle-form to stand naked around the spider queen. She extends an arm to each of them, one by one, and establishes a link. The six bear-men in the chamber gain a boon, "Cheldrassa's embrace" and may now communicate freely with her brood. They reclaim their gear from the other chamber. Your party plants a single lantern in the cavern where you charged from, and it is decided that everything beyond that point will belong to Cheldrassa and her children.Now Wat?!Sorry guys, I'm hitting my limit for tonight.I will post a stats update and we can pick up where we left off tomorrow night at 5:30 pm Central Standard Time?
